Coffee creamer or coffee whitener is commonly used instead of milk. The one you buy from the market is made from corn syrup, hydrogenated soybean, cottonseed oil, hydrogenated oils with a high level of trans fat and many other ingredients that may not be healthy for you. And in no way, it should be called ‘non-dairy’.
